Following her keynote, she will join Erick Wolf, founder of Airwolf 3D, and Justine Trubey, Vice President, Supply Chain for Shapeways, for a panel discussion on "State of the Industry: 3DP and AM Industry Trends and Opportunities on the Horizon," moderated by Zach Simkin, President of Senvol. These two sessions lead off a full day of 3D printing focus, with "What's Really New in Materials for 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing," and "From Concept to Hybrid Manufacturing: Discovering Workable Scale-Up Strategies," later that day.

3D Printing for the Medical Community

The following day, on Thursday, June 11, the third day of the MD&M conference track will present the day-long "3D Printing for Medical Device Design & Manufacturing," with sessions delving into materials, tissue engineering, and "The Future of 3D Printing from a Physician's Perspective," by Oren M. Tepper, MD, a surgeon in plastic surgery and craniofacial surgery.

This multi-industry New York event attracts people from a broad range of industries, with segments for industrial design and manufacturing (Atlantic Design & Manufacturing), packaging (EastPack), plastics, (PLASTEC East), automation and robotics (ATX East), quality assurance and management (Quality Expo East), medical device design and manufacturing (MD&M East), health and beauty product and brand development (HBA Global).

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
